The Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation, taking active part in the
commemorative events for the 200 years from the national uprising in 1821
against Ottoman rule, has initiated a live news stream on Twitter that aims
to guide readers through the first year of the Greek Revolution.



Events are reported day by day as if they are taking place in the present —
exactly 200 years after their respective dates. To follow the historical
events on Twitter: https://twitter.com/News1821 (in English)

https://twitter.com/eidiseis1821 (in Greek)



The particular initiative is further described at:
